    RAD with UNICODE support, a great class library, memory management, true OOP if you like it...

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    does c# support monitors? i.e. something similar to the java keyword "synchronized"?

    Well, I'm pretty sure C# supports Mutexes and Critical Sections and all the stuff that we had in C++... I don't know if they put it into a keyword for simplicity though...

    Yeah that's what I meant, a keyword (actually built inside the language, without having to introduce some of your own assembly code). NV, I think I'm gonna take the next few days off and check out all your C# links (thanks for getting that together by the way).

    RAD as borland explained it is "Rapid Application Development" And thats more of a software design, and not really anything from the launguage.

    Whats UNICODE?

    http://www.unicode.org/

    Click the big shiny link that says "What is Unicode?".

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
